Achieving success in any undertaking always involves good preparation before you even start it. The same holds for your first visit to a physical therapist (PT). It’s the best way to, as that saying goes, start on the right foot. You want all of the time and hard work that you put into it to pay off big-time.

To get the best results from physical therapy, take these suggestions
Get to your appointments on time— or, even better, a bit early. Reap the most from each session, and you don’t want to disrupt the schedules of your PT’s subsequent clients. Have a discussion with your PT about your treatment goals—what you want to accomplish, in how much time and if they’re realistic.
Don’t skip an appointment, as it will break your momentum and delay your recovery. On the financial front, not attending a session without sufficient advance notice may result in a cancellation fee. Before you start treatment, look into the facility’s cancellation policy.
Follow your PT’s directives. You may have your ideas about how to best “fix yourself,” but remember that he (or she) is the expert, not you. Not heeding his instructions—avoid certain movements, modify a physical activity, use a walker, brace, cane, etc.—can make your situation worse and hamper your recovery.
While still undergoing physical therapy, do your home exercises as instructed by your PT, and don’t deviate from them.
After you’ve completed your physical therapy series, retain your gains by following through with your home exercise plan.
You get out of your physical therapy regime what you put into it.
